[Gluster-users] Gluster on Clustered Storage

Hi ...,

How does one deploy Gluster on a clustered storage i.e. two server nodes
with a common storage array?

Say one has, two server nodes connected to a common storage array, that
exports 2 LUNs visible to both nodes.

[ Server 1 ]------[ Storage ]------[ Server 2 ]

Each server node mount a single LUN, but in case one of the node fails, the
other node takes over the LUN.

[ Server 1 ]<------[ LUN 1 | LUN 2 ]------>[ Server 2 ]

Failover:  [ LUN 1 | LUN 2 ]======>[ Server 2 ]

This take over is usually done using tools like 'Heartbeat'.

The reason I ask is, I already have such a configuration, and would like to
deploy Gluster on it.
